We are planning some exciting supported rides! These are longer and more challenging than our usual rides but we will have "on the road" and "turn-around" support.
These rides will include:
1) Highwood pass: June 9, 2019 - before the road open to vehicles
2) Black Sheep Fondo: July 7, 2019
2) Elbow Falls / Forgetmenot: July 21,2019
3) Banff to Lake Louise (via Bow Valley Parkway, 1A): July 28, 2019
Refreshments and supplies will be carried by support vehicles to make your ride more enjoyable.
Full details of each ride will be provided in the weeks before the event.

The weather in the mountains can change dramatically and often.
Clothing: This is Alberta and the weather can change almost instantaneously! Also, the temperature can drop sharply when you ascend...and feel very chilly when you start descending. Always have a hat, gloves and wind/waterproof layer you can put on. Shoe covers are a great idea but alternatively, put a couple of supermarket plastic bags in your saddle bag so they can be used to keep your feet dry in an emergency.
